This Mōhalu dress features our Liko`ula design in Eggshell and Celery.
Likoʻula: This print was created in celebration of Daryl and Melia's beautiful daughter's first birthday. The word liko here refers to the newly opened buds and leaves of the lehua, and is a poetic description for a child. 'Ula, meaning red, also gives a connotation to being sacred. Her full name, Likoʻulaikepoʻowaiakeakua, translates to, "sacred child from the headwaters of the gods."
Taking us back to our early styles, we reintroduce the simplicity of a “shell dress.” Back in ’85 when we opened our doors, we introduced the Shell Dress as a slip over when we had to go to the store. Not wanting anything too fancy, we thought the large panels would be best for our images.
Today we fancy it up a little - just so we can talk style, life, and print - in today’s terms! The collar frames the iwilei and the poʻo, the sleeve caps the shoulder, and the length is just enough to cover the beachwear. We invite you to bring your attitude: walk deliberately, lift that chin, shake that head of hair loose…. Wear it with tights. Keep your jeans on. May everything bloom in your wake! Available in sizes XXS - 2XL in machine-washable 55% Linen, 45% Rayon fabric.
